The National Kidney Foundation will award three, one-year, $35,000 awards in support of junior faculty. Promising young scientists are encouraged to submit proposals for investigating clinical research questions in nephrology, or closely related fields. Projects must be patient-oriented. The responsiveness of each application to the research agenda of the NKF will be one of the elements used in the assessment of proposals.
